GlobalData’s in-depth component forecast gives a detailed picture of the future prospects for a number of automotive technologies. Using this dataset, we can gain a rich understanding of the fortunes of the battery electric vehicle (BEV) segment.

Battery electric vehicles are models that store all their useable energy in an on – board battery pack and deploy it through one or more electric motors. Unlike adjacent technologies such as hybrids, plug -in hybrids and range extenders, battery electric vehicles do not use any form of combustion engine in their powertrains.
